    We’re excited to introduce our new site design. Thanks to our designer and dev team for months of hard work on this more modern, cleaner look.

    The best aspect of the new design is the wider max width. This became necessary as our tools grew more complex. Tools like Lineup Builder, Projections, and CourtIQ should all be much more user-friendly in your desktop view.

    Now that the overall design is released we’ll be updating a lot of individual pages. The home page is first on our list.

    Team RG has been using the site for the last few weeks in search of bugs. We found and fixed dozens, but we’re sure there are more lurking. If you find any issues please post them in this thread. Screenshots would be really helpful.

    Thanks!

    Above is the new header showing the main menu and the sub-menu. This view displays all of the links and tools from the old site. The Daily Research Console has been renamed “Research Tools”. Here you can access incentives for all sites and sports.

    Scrolling down on any page will minimize the sub-menu. On the old site, our header was “fixed”, meaning that it was only ever at the top of the page. You always had to scroll to the top to access any of our navigation items.
    With the new design, our header shifts as you scroll down the page such that the main 5 products we offer follow you as you scroll and the submenu hides (like it did before).

    You can now access any of our 5 main products, like our “Research Tools” at any scroll depth, but you still have to go back to the top of the page (like you did on the old design) to access any of our secondary navigation items, like “Articles”, “Search”, or “Starting Lineups”.

    If you click on any part of the main menu area that’s not already a link, it will take you to the top of the page and display the sub-menu.

    Agree on the desire for a darker version. I actually reloaded my browser a few times, thinking the site was somehow erroring out with all the white.

    i like it so far dont know much i will use site since i cant play dfs now cause of the attorney general of new york making dfs illegal

  • jemmi20

    love the new look. Was thrown back as i was researching player projections and the page warps instantly. With that being said, The tool is now broken. Not allowing me to take out the teams i dont want to see player stats on. Guessing this will be an issue across the board.

    Can you still chat while watching the show? If so I can’t find the page for it.

  • Gatorman44

    Not that great. The changes these past few weeks have slowed down my research. Defense versus position over the last week shows all FTPS red colored.

  • breves228

    When watching GrindersLive, the chat is cut off the screen. In other words, you can’t have the video and chat box in picture at the same time.

    Where are the player options-as in- if I wanted to type in their screen name and see their entry history. There were 2 slots on the top right that said player search and 1 said opponent search.

    You have to scroll all the way to the top of the screen and there is a magnifying glass next to the Twitter bird.

    Looking into this one now. This may be a problem at smaller browser widths. Are you on an iPad or desktop? Do you know your resolution or width of your browser window?

    This. Things are way too zoomed in, like the main page I can only see half of the scrolling articles. Then as several others have said I can’t see chat during the grinders live show. Other than that I love it. It’s so much faster and easier to use on the iPad.

    When I click research it just goes directly to NBA, what if I wanted to view NHL or something else?

    Got it – so you have often watched GrindersLive on iPad and have been able to see both video and chat on the landscape view? Would you prefer we revert it back to that?

  • ntfg

    I’m on a desktop, I can’t see the chat either.

  • FFmachine

    My incentives are gone on the new site.

  • Sportspoolie

    It doesn’t fit my screen properly, the old one did! Was the old one broken?

  • mattdlavender

    I opened up the Expert Chat, and it will not let me comment or type. I’ve refreshed multiple times and there is no changing the result.

    I had to shrink my screen (Ctrl+-) to see the chat window but it’s a lot smaller compared to before.

    From a UI perspective, the color choices seem to be a bit hard to distinguish what’s important and what’s not. Especially on the profile page, I was lost on where to look.

    You should be able to look at a page and know what the most important part of a design is and I’ve lost that with this new theme. I don’t know where to look first. There’s nothing that guides my eyes visually where I should look.

    Also the nav bar dark background and the RG logo doesn’t have enough contrast. The gradient logo where the blue gets darker at the bottom of Roto starts to get lost. I would recommend a white backdrop for the logo or a change from the blue to white for the logo in that setting. It’s not uncommon for brands to have multiple logo uses depending on the background but that would be up for you to decide your brand standards.

    My feedback is likely a bit more picky and detailed coming from a UI and UX background but thought I’d share it.

    Do you have DraftKings or FantasyAces selected from the menu-bar? It may have defaulted to FanDuel.

    I actually just noticed chat is at the bottom of the screen. That’s totally fine with me. Given how much quicker the site is running (loading Live can be really slow on iPad at times for some reason) I have no problem with it being at the bottom of the page. Plus I don’t have to see Jeff’s mug on the side of my screen if I’m reading chat haha.

    One other small thing I noticed (again I’m on iPad) when I click on a player’s name in the Grind Down it pulls up the box but only has the summary. Doesn’t show the projected pts or opponent until I click on “Game Log” and it’ll totally reloads the Grind Down page and if I click on that same players name again the box pops up with everything populated. Im sure it’s just a glitch but I have to reload the page every time I want to look at a new player’s game log.
